Interestingly Weird Fact?
My fascination with numbers and numerology, this number 13 follows me my whole life, also 44.
How did your journey as an entrepreneur all begin?
I had a hard time at school, I didn’t speak English.
Kids were not nice and would pick on me.
Got into high school. Some how made it thru it, graduated, went to college to make my parents happy.
Started selling stuff on eBay.
Studied business in college. Around the same time I was introduced to a moment that changed my entire life.
It was a network marketing company, Amway.
I was working as a waiter and not making tips, just an hourly wage.
I was still living with my parents going to community college.
Then told my family we need to switch all our buying habits.
They had weekly meetings so every Tuesday I put on a suit and drove there.
I didn’t make any money but I started to change. Did that for 2 years.
I read Rich Dad Poor Dad and realized I didn’t wanna go to college so I quit college which broke my parents heart.
That’s how it all started for me.
6 years ago when I moved to FL, this is the time I read Think and Grow Rich again, and it all resonated with me.
Big Reason Why?
Just the thought of ever going to a job scares me and drives me but my biggest reason why… in our family they always had jobs and work hourly. To change the course of the future generation. Teach my kids that there are better options.
Build schools in other countries and give back.
